Inspirational talks by ex-students to Y12
On Monday 10th October 2016, we welcomed a group of alumni back to school to meet our Sixth Formers as part of an annual event focusing on career paths and opportunities. An aspira onal keynote speech was delivered by alumnus, Justin Rowntree, who is the Manager of Silversmiths Restaurant in Sheffield City Centre. This was followed by a variety of Question and Answers sessions led by an alumnus about their careers and professional journeys. Students were able to sign up to the talk that they felt most interested them. They were able to learn about 'Life Beyond High Storrs' and different career paths including Law, Police, Politics, Accountancy, Digital Media and Engineering. The group of previous students enjoyed a tour of the school and a lunch in the students’ canteen! Many of them hadn’t been back to school since they had left and were thrilled to see the benefits of our Building Schools for the Future refurbishment. We are already in the process of organising our 2017 talks and have been overwhelmed by the responses from ex-students willing to come and take part. If this is something you feel you would be able to do for our students in coming years, then please get in touch.
